|Mystery Shopping a Funeral is Kind of Weird
Why would I do something like this? Glad you asked. Simple: each completed shop pays $150. In the world of mystery shopping, there are very few opportunities that pay as well as this. I think I was paid somewhere close to this to go through the mortgage application process once. But besides hotels, cash integrity shops and distant gas stations, most shops pay under $20.
Is this my new life? One day I'm stepping into a truck stop shower, the next I'm crashing some family's last farewell. Just goes to show that nothing is immune to the mystery shopping bug, not even death.
